This is one of my other toys besides my little masseys. I have had it for about 5 years now and just got it back together this past summer after having the body off and sandblasting and repainting the frame. The motor is a 351 windsor stroked to a 398. It is estimated around 600hp. I have 3.55 rear gears in it with a full spool and a C-6 auto tranny.

I have some pictures of it in one of my albums here.


Here is a little video I posted of it at idle when I first got it back together. The suction line from the tank to the fuel pump came loose and lost it's prime which is why it shut off at the end.

I will have to see what I can dig up. I lost a lot of pictures when my old pc crashed and I had to build a new one.

LOL, I think it can. I am a law abiding citizen.....





1st gear is a waste and if ya smack 2nd while the tires are roasting it just keeps roasting and you can use the four barrel to get it going again if it starts to grab. Once the weather warms up I will have to take a video driving around with it and maybe one of it at the track or burning em off LOL

I added all the pics I have on it into my albums under my profile. I need to get better with taking pics and documenting the progress on things I work on.

The album is here.
